iEdison Feedback Session Meeting

NIST is closely monitoring guidance from Federal, State, and local health authorities on the outbreak of COVID-19. To protect the health and safety of NIST employees and the American public they continue to serve, NIST has decided to make the iEdison Feedback Session virtual only.

For questions regarding your registration, please contact

The NIST Technology Partnerships Office is overseeing the rebuild of the interagency Edison system for extramural invention reporting under the Bayh-Dole act. NIST received a number of responses to a Request For Information, as well as extensive feedback from agency users. This workshop will be an opportunity for stakeholders to hear about the development plan of the system from NIST, discuss the overall feedback received and provide additional input, and help NIST continue to refine the requirements of the system so that it meets both internal and external needs. Recipients of Federal grants and contracts who are current users of the iEdison system are encouraged to attend.
